iCloud Drive, iCloud Mail, iCloud Keychain, iCloud Contacts, iCloud Calendar, Mail Drop, Find My iPhone, and more are performing "slower than normal" for some users.

The problem has been ongoing since 8:51 a.m. Pacific Time this morning, and there's no word on when it might clear up.

If you've been noticing problems with iCloud services, this outage is the reason why. We'll update this post when the problem is resolved.

What's really been bugging me about iCloud is that since the last OS upgrade, I have to sign into iCloud every single time I boot my Mac, and then it proceeds with "Setting up your Mac". Every single time. I was told to sign out of iCloud and then sign back in, which I did. That fixed the problem for one reboot. I also don't like that if I sign out of iCloud and elect to save what's on my Mac, it deletes what's on my Mac. What is it with Apple and cloud services?
That sounds more like a problem with your OS

I got an email from Amazon a few days ago that they were moving from Oracle's DB SW to Amazon's own Aurora PostgreSQL DB SW today (early this morning, I recall). AWS has been spotty all day, but I planned for it. I'd read that Aurora choked on Prime Day a few months ago, so no surprise today - I scheduled couriers today and tomorrow for critical deliveries and glad that I did now...

You mean Apple acknowledged the issue 8:51 a.m. Pacific Time. I’ve had iCloud mail issues for past 3 days.
